       bitpim - utility to communicate with many CDMA phones


       bitpim  [ -c file  |  -d dir ]  [ -f model ] [ -p device ] [ bitfling ]
       [ debug ] [ cli-command ]


       This manual page documents briefly the bitpim command.

       BitPim allows you to view and manipulate data on many phones  from  LG,
       Samsung,  Sanyo,  and other manufacturers that use Qualcomm CDMA chips.
       Depending on your phone model, you may be  able  to  access  the  phone
       book, the calendar, wallpapers, ring tones, and the filesystem.


       A summary of options is included below.

       -c file
              Read configuration from file.

       -d dir Read configuration from dir/.bitpim.

       -f model
              Assume  a phone type of model rather than what the configuration
              file specifies.  Particularly useful in CLI mode.

       -p device
              Communicate with the phone via the device ("port") device.

              Run as bitfling(1).

       debug  Print debugging information  to  standard  output  and  standard

              Interact   with   the  phone’s  filesystem  via  a  command-line
              interface.  The command must be a single (quoted) argument,  and
              can take any of the following forms:
              cli    Bring  up an interactive shell, allowing all of the below
                     commands as well as a few others (cd dir, cdu, exit,  and
                     pwd or equivalently cwd).
              cp src [...] destdir
                     Copy files to, from, or within the phone.
              ll dir [...]
                     Print a detailed listing of the specified phone directory
                     or directories.
              ls dir [...]
                     Print a brief listing of the specified phone directory or
              mkdir dir [...]
                     Create a directory on the phone.
              rm file [...]
                     Remove one or more files from the phone.
              rmdir dir [...]
                     Remove  one  or  more  directories, which must already be
                     empty, from the phone.

              Please note that none of these commands accepts  wildcards.   To
              indicate  that  an  argument  denotes a file or directory on the
              phone, you can prefix it with phone:; this  is  mainly  relevant
              for  cp,  which  performs  phone-to-PC  copies  unless otherwise


              The default configuration file.
